Brent Council began a trial on LED lighting and used Manor School as the test case.
Previously the school had been using traditional fluorescent T8 technology which did not provide effective and reliable lighting and the natural light interfered with the teaching equipment. Maintenance costs were also very high due to the lamps constantly failing every 6-12 months.
Zeta Specialist Lighting worked closely with Brent Council and the School to optimise the lighting levels and controls, allowing energy savings by a reduction in the total consumption as well as incorporating dimming controls. Zeta replaced all of the current fittings in the classrooms with the 1200 x 600 LED Ceiling Panels which were also made dimmable.
Zeta then revamped the halls and stairwells with the Zeta Retrofit LED Tubes and installed the Zeta 600 x 600 LED Ceiling Panels in the theatres and assembly halls.
Maintenance savings were achieved as the LED Celling Panels, have an expected lifetime of over 10 years which was perfect for the school. Zeta designed the LED Ceiling Panel’s power supply to work on the current traditional wiring, meaning the installation could be completed 50% more cost effectively and therefore within the School’s budget.
